Me + The IG Wives + Lane Bryant Showing Body Diversity Through Fashion8:00 AM
"Each of us lives within a vessel that is uniquely ours and also perfectly 'real.'" ~ Jes BakerRecently, Lane Bryant reached out to me with an amazing opportunity that I couldn't pass up.
They have created a pant called The Allie Pant that has a universal fit. And get this... they wanted me (yes, me!) to partner with The Instagram Wives to show how the pants look on different sized bodies/shapes.
With me being a size 26/28, this is major! Women my size are not really seen front and center so kudos to Lane Bryant for being open to having a woman my size in a campaign. I legit want to cry as I type this because this means the world to me. Just to be seen and alongside women who are under a size 22!?! WHAT?!? Man, let the Big 22+ Girl Revolution begin! It's about time.
The Instagram Wives and I had a lot of fun shooting for this project. Sandra is a size 20, Darlene is a size 18 and Jami is a size 16. We're also all different shapes and heights. With me included, it felt like we really showcased how the Allie pant works for different bodies.

I was surprised that the length was a bit long for me. I requested the average length and I'm 5'7".
